RACE THE FLUX : Nice young men with angry instruments.

Race the Flux are a four piece alternative rock band from Galway. They showcase a mature and commercially experimental sound in their currrent EP ‘Olympians’, which was recorded & mixed by Rocky O’Reilly (Oppenheimer, ASIWYFA, The Wonder Villains) at Start Together Studios, Belfast, is a follow up to the band’s Debut LP ‘Dutch Buffalo,a perfect blend of alternative rock with electronic influences released in June 2013, which received very positive reviews.

Their track ‘Olympus Mons’has been used by the the Munster rugby team as their pitch entrance music for the 15/16 season. They have had a wealth of live experience supporting the likes of Tame Impala, And So I watch You From Afar, El Ten Eleven, The Redneck Manifesto, Alpha Male Tea Party & 100 Onces. They have also graced the stages of Irelands premier festivals such as Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan & Vantastival. They were also long listed for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent 2016.

“It’s right up there with the best Irish tracks released this year” – The Thin Air

“One of the more compelling tracks to appear from the West of Ireland in recent memory.” – Dublin Concerts


Pranks: The two are finding the process of creating music together lots of fun.

“As a two-piece, creating a sound as big as this is fascinating. We love to experiment with analogue and digital technology, to see how far it can take us. ..”
